In each issue—and for more than 20 years—Vision Systems Design aims to provide in-depth technical articles and information focused exclusively on the information needs of machine vision and imagingprofessionals. 2018 was no different, as we sought to cast a wide net in terms of coverage, ranging from 3D mapping in January to the detection of pharmaceutical contaminants in December.
This gallery provides a look at one innovative, real-life application that uses machine vision technology to accomplish something new from each issue of 2018. In addition to the topics above, the list includes articles such as a vision-guided robot that hunts down harmful starfish (pictured) and an imaging technique that combines opto-acoustic imaging with conventional ultrasound techniques for the classification of breast tumors.
